Kiteboarding is one of the most interesting sporting events in the world. Therefore the KiteFoil competition is going to be held in the Canary Islands from 1st to 4th of December 2023. Since it is the winter season, the whole of Europe is shivering from the cold but the Canary Islands are enjoying a very good amount of sunlight and healthy weather with good wind. These all are the perfect ingredients to make a speed-boating competition successful.
The high-speed foil racer will have ample chances from their end to show their skill in sailing through the water. This competition is going to host 24 competitors from 14 countries across 3 continents of the world. Speed Foiling is basically dependent on the wind. As the wind speed increases, the speed of the boats will also increase. Therefore strong wind is like a blessing for the KiteFoil sailors.
